The newest addition to the Avery Elle lineup with this release is Have a Ball. Gumball machines are very nostalgic to me, bringing me back to my childhood! Whenever we were out to eat dinner, my dad would give my brother and I a quarter to go spend at the machines......I always came back with a gumball in my mouth!
I reverted to an old technique......Paper Piecing. I stamped the gumball machine onto grey and red cardstock and trimmed out. These pieces were adhered to another gumball machine stamped in white. The coordinating die set has a die to cut the inside of the gumball machine out! Make this a shaker or not.....I chose to use that area to pop my gumballs up with foam adhesive. My gumball machine was adhered to a panel of pattern paper from the Spring Collection Paper Pad along with a 1/4" black cardstock strip. Lastly, I added a hand cut tag stamped "You are so sweet!" with some Bakers Twine.

There's a new script sentiment set that is amazing called Script Layered Sentiments! I love the size and there are dies that cut each one out with a larger border! I've paired it with the adorable bear from Beary & Bright. I added a coordinating sentiment strip white heat embossed onto a black strip of cardstock. I created my own wintery scene using the new Random Dots Stencil on both the main card base and a layer that was die cut using the Pierced Rounded Frames Elle-ments. A die cut bow, from Pierced Rounded Frames Elle-ments, was added to finish the card.
